Is the exhaust manifold cracked internally? This was my issue. To be more specific, I would get an open loop code on the diacom.  Water was getting to the O2 sensor from the cracked manifold. Is this port or starboard? From my research, the port exhaust manifold is common for cracking internally.

If this resolves, let me know where to send the invoice :biggrin:

There are literally 20 threads on this issue.  What code is it throwing?  I had the same issue come up on my 13 LSV, the light came on for years and I just kept clearing it or ignoring it. I changed both cats, all o2 sensors, and ECM.  I have no idea what was bad, but I put another 500 hours on it before I sold it and it never came back.  My guess is its bad cats or ECM. If you can't afford to throw parts at it, Id say just deal with it.  If you are mechanically inclined its not to hard to replace cats and super easy to replace ECM.  Bakes will have everything you need.
